In a region full of beautiful beaches it can be difficult to name a true standout, but if there is one, the sandy shores of Ile aux Cerfs, may just take the title. This private island off the east coast of Mauritius in the Flacq district is owned by an exquisite five-star hotel and serves as a destination for travelers seeking island luxury.
Visitors can wander approximately 100 hectares of pristine beaches and lush tropical foliage, visit the gilded and magnificent halls of one of the country’s top hotels, play a round on the exclusive 18-hole golf course, dine at one of the island’s incredible restaurants or take a dip in the clear blue lagoon. Travelers and locals agree—Ile aux Cerfs is the perfect destination to relax, unwind and recharge.
Boats depart daily from the village of Trou d’Eau Douce, and travelers may eventually be able to catch catamarans from Pointe Jerome as well. Organized (and personalized) tours are also offered.
